St. Mary’s Academy fosters excellence in each child through academic achievement, spiritual development and service. The Loretto School Values of faith, community, justice and respect provide the foundation for students to be powerful agents of change.

Statement of Inclusivity

St. Mary's Academy affirms the inherent dignity and value of each individual.  Our school embraces the distinct identity of each person and helps students to appreciate their own identities and those of others.  St. Mary's Academy actively seeks families, faculty and staff who bring a range of experience to the school.

We believe diversity increases the ability to formulate and nurture ideas and relationships resulting in a school community where all opinions and views are respected.

St. Mary's Academy provides a scholarly learning environment for an educational experience that prepares students to participate in an increasingly complex global society.

We believe that in a multicultural society, developing competency, the will and ability to create authentic and effective relationships across differences, is crucial to being a responsible and compassionate world citizen.

What is the sum of 8 and 8?

My sisters and I often remark about how grateful we are for our St. Mary’s Academy education.  The tradition will continue when my daughter enters SMA as a ninth grader.  I know that her experiences at SMA will help her become a caring and responsible adult.
